Hello creative friends!! Friday has rolled around again, and I have yet another Power Poppy card to share with you that I made using two digital images: Easy Breezy Coneflowers, and Dancing with Daffodils.
Marcella is challenging us with a unique and super fun Power and Sparklette challenge this week. We are to "Color Outside the Lines", and I must admit, I had to step out of my comfort zone for this one.
I love the textured look of using Copics with a Blending Solution soaked material, but have not had success with it in the past. So this time I was determined. And to my delight I was happy with the results on my very first try. Especially since it took me quite awhile to color the background.
I started by printing out my image and diecutting it using Spellbinders' Labels 25 die. I left the image in the die while coloring so I would have a nice clean border. Well, my border didn't stay super clean, but the distressing I did, using a piece of burlap and Copic Blending Solution made it acceptable I think. After using the Blending Solution, I used RV10 to color in some of the white spaces.
Below is what it looked like before coloring the Coneflowers. I LOVE charcoal sketches, (and have a few in my collection) so I was really drawn to this look. However, last week I created a card with white "Black Eyed Susans", so I thought I would be cheating if I did that again. *grin*
I still like this look though...*wink*
That's it for me today. I hope I've encouraged y'all to get creative, and step out of your box and color outside the lines. The winner will receive every set in the Power Poppy 2016 Holiday Clear Stamp Collection when they debut in October. Now that's an INCREDIBLE prize...let me tell you!!!
